Medium Rare - Capitol Hill Ratings and Reviews
I've been here for dinner, and the food and service was good. Remembering this, I booked a table for four for brunch. It's a fixed menu, with your choice of starter, and entree. Everyone elected to get the steak & eggs. The steak was cooked well, however, everyone's poached egg was barely cooked. We did not eat it. When mentioned, we were told that that is how a poached egg looks. The server clearly never cooked eggs before.
We also got the bottomless mimosas. The first refill we did not have to ask for. The second refill we asked, but the server never came back. We practically had to tackle him down to get the refill.
Overall, I would recommend this place for dinner, but not for brunch.

We went to Medium Rare for brunch. We both ordered steak and egg, but with different eggs. He ordered scrambled and I ordered poached. The poached egg was a little bit too runny to the point that I couldn't quite enjoy the egg, it looked like a sauce to the steak. Steak's amazing as per usual. The service was great, we never saw the bottom of our drink until the very end before we left. Would definitely go again.
I was with a party of five for brunch. The drinks were good for the most part, but the two people who had mimosas agreed they were mostly orange juice. The appetizers were fantastic but the entrees were extremely disappointing. The poached eggs were runny to the point that we were unable to eat them with a fork. The meat was extremely undercooked; I ordered medium and it was blue. We did all agree that the French toast was fantastic. The waiter made several mistakes with the orders and took an extremely long time to refill drinks, get the check, etc.
Let me say that I have always come to MR for dinner and the food and experience is phenomenal. However I was disappointed this past weekend when we decided to slip in at 2:30 to eat on a Sunday on our way back from NYC with our visiting family/guests.
We were a party of 4, of which 3 members do not drink. Nobody offered to explain to us that the brunch menu was a bit different than dinner. The server did not mention the menu differences and rushed us to get our orders in (which we were happy to comply since we were hungry and tired!).
Don’t get me wrong, our waitress was sweet- but we just wished she would have clarified or made a suggestion upon learning that the majority of our party did not order the bottomless alcohol. She did not do anything wrong, but unfortunately, we did not find this to be of value considering that we paid $5 more than dinner pricing, but for half of the food. We noticed that a few parties that ordered right after us received dinner service. We left a bit disappointed and still hungry, especially since I had hyped up the restaurant to our guests.
Lesson learned- don’t come for the brunch unless you are coming to drink!!!!
Brunch is typically a busy time, especially when a bottomless brunch is offered, but the service was pretty sub par. Perhaps more staff for a busy brunch time would help, but we were served poached eggs with very runny whites, dirty glasses, and coffee mugs that looked like more coffee made it outside than inside the mug. The waitstaff was not very tentative, although this may be due to short staffing or other factors.
Overall 4/5 stars
My main issues were the music was so loud it prevented conversation, and we had to ask multiple times for standard condiments for their meal: ketchup and vinegar for fries. These should just be on the table.
Easy prix fixe menu made dinner for a large group hassle free.
Would definitely return.
